Smudge has spent her life of 5/6 years raising her pups and it is now time for her to live the life she deserves. She would like another small dog to play with and she said that a fenced yard would be a plus as she isn’t very comfortable on a leash yet. She is getting used to going outside but not to sure that she likes grass. She loves to cuddle once she gets to know you but still needs time to build her confidence. She is a little bundle of pure joy.

Smudge is in foster care, but you can meet her, just put in your application and once it’s processed a meet and greet will be arranged.

If you think you might be interested in adopting, your first step should be to complete an  Adoption Application.  *After you have completed your application, you will get a confirmation that we have received your application. It takes a lot of time to process the applications, so we ask for your patience while we do so. If you see that the dog you were interested in has been adopted it means there were many applications for that dog and we did not get as far as processing your application before a home was found. We welcome you to apply again if you see another dog that interests you.   If you have a question, please email your question to It is much easier and quicker for us to respond by email as we receive many phone calls each day.

We do adopt out of state, however we do not transport or ship dogs. Potential adopter must be able and willing to travel to the Rescue to meet the dog they are interested in.

*PLEASE double check all of the phone numbers that you provide as if they are incorrect, we will be unable to process your application. Please also let your references know that someone from NCCR will be calling them. Most adoption team members call from their personal phone so advise your references that there may be an unknown number or a private number calling them.
